Have Heart

Time permitted me this week to get to  play some challenges I've wanted to do and this time it is CAS-ual Fridays CFC74. The challenge is to create a clean and simple card with a heart.

I colored my heart with Copics and left it alone. I could not imagine that it needed one more thing.

I love this stamp and have used it three times, one being when our city had our W.C. Handy Festival (jazz)
in July. It was just perfect then and it is also great for the community choir where my hubby and I are members or the church choir. I think I know just the person that needs this card.

Jing, jing-a-ling

Are you singing yet? I sure am. If you aren't familiar with this song, you can find it here.  My card is for the usual Friday challenge I play on Splitcoaststampers, Queen for the Day.  The new queen is Shirley aka wannabcre8tive. This card is the one I cased from her wonderful gallery.

Set of Fall Leaves

As hostess again this week at CCEE Stampers, I have asked that we do Fall colors with leaves and a punched border. I have been on a Fall card making binge this week. I think this is my fourth one. But, I do love the colors and it was fun to make. This, after a failed first attempt. Do you ever make a card you just don't like at all and can't stand to upload it? I did, and finally I made another (this one) which I like much better. The other one will probably go to the trash.

I hope you'll check out the rest of the awesome cards the DT did this week at CCEE Stampers. There is a lot of pretty Fall color over there.

I want to enter this card into these challenges:

 Little Red Wagon where the challenge is Fallin' for You..they want a Fall themed card (leaves, fall colors, etc.).

Fall Wreath

I wanted to use my leaf stamp to make a wreath. It is a Stampabilities stamp called Fall Leaf.
The sentiment is Stamps by Judith. I had to do some masking to make it work. Added a button and raffia to the center. That is a cardstock strip going across the card behind my focal image, not ribbon.

I'm entering this card, my second entry, into the CASology challenge #14 where the cue word is 'leaf'.

Little Red Wagon has a challenge #154 - Fallin' for You---They want to see Fall leaves, colors, etc.

Fall Greetings

 No, the sentiment was not stamped crooked, just the way it is supposed to be..a little wonky. :-)

The CASology challenge #14 uses the cue word 'leaf'. Nothing better than that to have the opportunity to make an autumn creation.


I used a woodland branch die from Memory Box and punched a few leaves with a Martha Stewart fall leaves edge punch (remnants).

Fall Birthday Card and A Winner

I have a friend having a birthday this month and I wanted to  make a card similar to what I thought she would make. Well, that is quite impossible. If you know Carol at Chocolate Crafts and Bears, Oh My, then you know that is quite a big job. Wow! Can she ever make a super card and so many other crafty things. Take a look. I took my idea from this card of Carol's because I had an image a bit like hers, also a punch like hers.
Carol likes a lot of sparkle and gemstones on her cards so I tried to do that, too. I colored my image with Copics and sponged around it. My recipe is below.
NOW, it is time to announce the winner of my blog candy. Thanks to everyone who joined in  and the winner is ..............................
